Really enjoyed the location and the comfort. The room was a bit noisy at night as it's not a solid door and there are other people in the house. However, it was quiet during the hours of 10pm to 6am for the most part (pretty reasonable).
It's SO peaceful sitting on the porch watching the birds and fog roll through the valley behind the house.
The community kitchen is great, bathroom and room were clean and cozy. I would definitely recommend this location!
**The reason I left four not five stars is that on the listing page it states "bed and breakfast", however there is no breakfast provided. Not a big deal for us, just don't let it surprise you if you're expecting breakfast. There are however fresh eggs and other little amenities that are great! Will definitely be back to this location at some point!
The room with a shared bathroom was perfect. I loved the decor, the gorgeous location, the quiet, sitting on the lanai overlooking the River canyon, and feeling that the whole house was accessible to the guests.
Me Maria 62, my mother Jadwiga 86 and my daughter Anna 36 -- three of us stayed in Fabienne's hospitable house for 9 nights in January 2014. We couldn't dream about better accommodation satisfying such a wide range of age. Beautiful garden with gorgeous view over Wailua Valley, clean, quiet well equipped and with taste decorated house as well as very friendly and helpful staff.
Place highly recommended.
We had a great experience staying at Magic Sunrise. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable and the location is just lovely. The atmosphere is peaceful and very relaxed. The other guests staying there were very friendly. Very recommended as a central base for a great time discovering Kaua'i.
This accomodation was the most beautiful, clean, nicely equipped and decorated and for sure tropical place we stayed at on our trip to Hawaii's Islands. We can clearly recommend it to everyone! It's a wonderful place for relaxing holidays.
The house has a great view! :) Fabienne was helpful and nice. -be careful about the mosquitos though...
Cute house in a nice green area close to Wailua River. The high ceilings accommodate a cool environment day and night, whereas the private garden space and balcony upstairs let you enjoy the outside breeze and views.
The house is well equiped. Nice touch is the washing machine and dryer in the backside room, which can be used for a small payment. Also, local coffee and honey are available for a donation.
One downside: we had a lot of itchy bugbites, even after the insect repellent we consequently used. We are quite sure we got those from the double bed we slept in, for all bites were gone day after we left.
Nice Location. Good for starting Trips to North and South.
My husband and I stayed at Fabienne's place for about 3 days and it was absolutely great! She took great care of us and her property was simply amazing and perfectly located for sightseeing in Kauai. I would highly recommand staying there as she really makes you feel at home, away from home and the view from the porch was just breathtaking. Mahalo for making our few days on the Kauai Island so memorable.

I arrived late, but that was perfectly clear that my one month Hawaiian trip couldn't start better. Nice, spacious room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom and my God! the morning view!!!!!
You shouldn't miss it!
Desiree made this reservation for her mom, Fabiene. My dealings with Desiree are limited to a few emails,, but I can say she is very responsive and easy to communicate with.
As for her mom Fabiene, where do I begin?
Probably one of the most interesting, happy, nice, energectic people I have ever met. She brought a smile with her and left it with us when she left. This is one of the experiences where we took in a guest/customer and ended up with a friend. Awesome person, great personality, clean and caring guest, able to make friends just about anywhere. We are looking forward to here next trip to Chiang Mai, but until then we HIGHLY recommend her to all AirBNB users.
My stay at the Magic Sunrise Hawaii has been wonderful! Desiree is a wonderful host. She's kind and flexible, a very polite host. She helped me with drying my laundry right when I arrived (I had a situation with wet laundry...longer story). Also, the property is amazing!! There are lotus flowers in small ponds around the yard, the lanai has hammocks, tables and chairs and overlooks the gorgeous, expansive mountain-side. This view is full of lush trees, palms, exotic flowers, and an outdoor pool. Bring your camera here because there's so much beauty, you will want to take it all in while you will also feel comfortable relaxing in paradise. Overall, Magic Sunrise Hawaii is the best in Kauai for the value and rate.
